Now comes the first post-loss game of the season. As always, UNC's performance bears watching since how a team responds to a loss is perhaps one of the most important step in a team's development. The only caveat here is during the season there is usually two days or more to digest the defeat and invest some time in practice before facing the next opponent. UNC gets no such luxury here facing its third game in three days.

The opponent for Wednesday is Division II Chaminade which beat Texas on Monday but lost by 23 to Illinois. The Silverswords do have a solid player in DeAndre Haskins who torched the Longhorns for 31 points and scored 19 against Illinois last night. Shutting him down could be the key to derailing Chaminade's offense since it is not likely the Silverswords have much in the way of quality depth.

Still, Chaminade did beat Texas which is a point Roy Williams should emphasize with the young Tar Heels prior to taking the floor in this one. This game is about how UNC bounces back and playing the first half of the game like they played the final nine minutes against Butler. UNC has superior athletes and should play the game like that is the case. If the Heels do that, it will not be close nor should it be.

UNC 91 Chaminade 65
